The Cleopatra We Never Knew
Researchers at Cambridge University have recreated the face of Cleopatra, the Egyptian queen who reigned from 69-30 BC, on a computer. The recreation of Cleopatra’s face was based on 2,000-year-old drawings and images on coins.
The most famous image of Cleopatra was the portrayals of her by Hollywood actress Elizabeth Taylor in the movie “Cleopatra' (1963).”
